No, my suggestion is to loose up on requirements on buildroots. There
is no known problem ever caused by choosing a "wrong" buildroot even
by novices, and we're definitely over-engineering in fixing stuff that
never broke.

But if you want to be pedantic about corner cases, you would have to
take arch far more serious than the user's id. The current
suggested/preferred/mandatory buildroot is far from being worth being
called that way.
